History

Celebrating 140 years of heritage, passion and service excellence.

The Oriental Legend Lives On

In the middle of the 19th century, when Thailand was still known as Siam, a rest house for foreign seafarers was established on the banks of the Chao Phraya River. It was to become one of the world’s greatest hotels: The Oriental.

In 2015, Mandarin Oriental, Bangkok commenced a comprehensive renovation of the Authors’ and Garden Wings, designed to significantly enhance the facilities and services of this award-winning hotel, and to restore the historic heart of the property to its original splendour.

The project comprised a significant reconfiguration of the guestrooms in the Garden Wing with the creation of 12 brand new spacious suites with balconies. The highly acclaimed Le Normandie restaurant on the top floor of the Garden Wing was also gently rejuvenated. At the same time, the renowned Authors’ Lounge – a favourite destination for afternoon tea, society weddings and elegant events – was restored to its classic late 19th-century design, and linked to the terrace and gardens with a series of lounges that pay tribute to The Oriental’s famous heritage authors.

Over the years, Mandarin Oriental, Bangkok has consistently garnered global recognition as the best hotel in the world, famed not only for its excellent facilities but also for its legendary Oriental service that is delivered by a team of talented and dedicated colleagues, many of whom have been with the hotel for over 20 years.

We are thrilled to be ‘celebrating 140 years of Heritage, Passion and Service Excellence’ with our guests and colleagues, and we look forward to welcoming you into the Oriental charm of Mandarin Oriental, Bangkok. Celebrate with us and experience what makes this exceptional hotel a legend in the city, and throughout the world.
